Current Law Students / What time should I take my bar prep course?
« on: January 15, 2010, 06:00:43 AM »
I'm a 3L planning to take the bar this summer.  I do not have a job yet, but obviously I am looking for one.  My bar review course is offering two times for classes:  one group in the morning, and one group at night.

Which one do I take?  I was planning on taking the morning class, because I'm assuming that any potential employer wouldn't want me to start working until after the bar exam...but is that true?  Is there any chance that I would have to work during my studies?

Thanks for any input!

I just took a final and feel like I totally botched it.  Now I have finals on Wednesday and Friday that I feel completely unprepared for.  I could actually do worse on those.

Does anyone just feel like dropping out after you fail a final?  I just feel so down for having done such a poor job...I'm questioning whether I have the work ethic to continue on with law school.  Is it crazy to drop out after completing one year?

Current Law Students / Thinking of quitting law school...

I'm a 1L at a top-50 law school (between 40 and 50), and I'm miserable at law school.  I did ok first semester, but I'm getting really depressed over my future career as a lawyer.  I liked the material that I read first semester, and I liked writing, but I don't want to work crazy hours to make ends meet, and the though of $100k of debt panics me.  I'm not happy with myself either...I'm really out of shape, and I've completely lost touch with friends and family.  I also feel like I don't fit the typical aggressive lawyer type, either...I'm also realizing that I probably won't be in the top 10% or even 25%, which could prove harmful to me when trying to find a job that pays well.

Should I quit now before I get too deep in debt?  Should I fight through it?
